I must admit I have not been keeping up with all of the Etsy sellers. I have a few that I have and I like them but I guess I just haven't gotten swept up in the frenzy of it all. I am, however, obsessed with one Etsy seller and that is Dandy Nails. I now have 5 of them (small by Blogger standards, I know LOL) and I can't wait to get more of them! I purchased 3 on this last round and I am in love with all of them. The quality of her polish is amazing. The glitters do not sink like many other Etsy polishes and her formula is fabulous. I really can't say enough good things about Dandy Nails, if you don't have any you need to get some asap.
You Set My Soul Alight is black with multi-colored microglitter scattered throughout. It is so pretty and such a nice way to do black, it seems lit from within! Dandy Nails has recently gotten a new brush for the bottles and I love it. It is wide and flat, it reminds me of OPI's brush except not quite as wide.
I love her labels and the handle of the brush is SLIGHTLY squared at the top to make gripping it easier.
Old brush on the bottom, new brush on the top. I don't mind the old one but I really like the new one.
I used 2 coats of YSMSA for full opacity, no "underwear" required. It dried a bit dull but ONE coat of top coat (I used Cult Nails Wicked Fast) made it completely smooth and shiny.
First up some sunlight pics (we have more than enough of that here in Arizona LOL)
Inside under artificial lighting...
I had seen one post on YSMSA from Pointless Cafe (you can see her post HERE) where she had put matte top coat on an accent nail and I loved it and decided I needed to see it matte. LOL So I added one coat of Hard Candy's Matte-ly In Love for the last 4 photos.
Isn't it amazing matte?! I can't decide how I like it better. I currently have one hand matte and one shiny. LOL
Sorry about the doggie hair on my index finger. It is way too short to be Snickerdoodle's or Sam's, it must be Sasha's. :)
